Prue Leith ready for a new season inside the tent.
completion The Great British Baking Show co-host Matt Lucas announced that he will leave the show after three seasons in December, judge Prue said Saga, according to Expressthat he was “very sad” about his exit—but that didn’t stop him from thinking about his potential replacement.
While Prue noted that she “totally understands” why Matt made the decision to leave the show, citing his desire “to do more writing, more theater,” she just hopes that whoever takes over Matt was someone she knew.
“I want someone I can hear,” Prue recently said in an interview with ITV’s Lorraine. “I love them but the truth is that I never understood Matt and [co-host] Christmasof [Fielding] still jokes.”
If it’s Prue not knowing the new host, at least there is some historical reason for optimism. Prue, who admitted she had “never heard of Noel Fielding until I met him,” now has smooth chemistry with the co-host.
Prue and Noel, who both joined The Great British Baking Show during the eight season of 2017, will remain in the show, with the judge Paul Hollywood.
